And then Dudley Bradley banked one in from like beyond the three point line in the top of the key area and the bullets scored eighteen points. End The game. I remember watching that game and I don't know if we've ever seen comeback in playoff history like that down eight down seventeen with three forty to go probably not win a game. I don't think we have It sparked a conversation this morning about some of the recent great comebacks the best one I've seen recently. Darren was at Texas A and M comeback over northern Iowa. Yeah and the tournament was that two years ago he was twenty seventeen. I looked up and they were down twelve with thirty one seconds to to go and came back forced overtime in one. It's pretty hard to come from twelve down now. It also brought this up be. Somebody tweeted this to me. Did you see this yesterday now. You know what I'm going to talk about now. So yesterday. Duke Basketball tweeted out the nineteen year anniversary of the Miracle Game. That's what I was afraid. Yes so they tweeted that out and there was a lot of response to it and somebody sent that to me today. That was pretty incredible. That was down ten with a minute to go in this bullets. Let's come back against the seventy sixers. They were down ten with a minute to go. They'd cut the seventeen to ten with like a minute ago and then ended up winning The most painful of all all those was definitely the Duke Game. The bullets game was a thrill I was like. Oh my God they just beat the we might win this series got I loved the NBA back. Then and I love the bullets back then I does is any no one remembers those years. Now all right. Tell me about your column that you just broke out. sixty-nine chiefs I'm GONNA spend a minute talking about my call alter and then a minute talking about something else and then I'm done and I'm not going to talk anymore until Thursday. I'm listening okay. I wrote a column about what I said was the forgotten on defense in the NFL The nineteen sixty nine chiefs that went on to defeat the Minnesota Vikings twenty three to seven in the last time the chiefs are in the super bowl super bowl four and How great that defense was and it may have been one of the greatest of all time that really gets you know forgotten when we're talking about like the Great Pittsburgh steeler defense is the Great Chicago? Bears Defenses. no-one mentioned sixty is a sixty nine chiefs And and they play three playoff games against the jets the raiders and And the Vikings they beat the jets. Thirteen the six. They beat the raiders. Seventeen seven they beat the the. They beat the Vikings Twenty three to seven. I think it's the first time. And the the only time it postseason history where a team has held opposing teams to under ten points in all their playoff games. I think think that's really the only time that's ever happened. Boy The forty niners are getting close. Yes well actually no. They're not Yeah so so I mean and and one of the things I pointed out was is. There's only two teams in history. NFL that has this. Many qualified customers on their defense was the packers. Six Hall of famers Amazon that late sixties packers defense and the sixty nine chief had six hall of famers on the defense curly called Buck Buchanan. We'll even the air bobby bell Johnny Robinson and Emma Thomas all the other team great defense talk about not six hall of famers on the list. Wow that's what about the steelers defenses. Now Four for four on on on the list of the Great Seventies steelers defense and I interviewed Bobby Bell about that. You know how great that defense was. He told a story about how the jets had a goal line. The jets had three plays from the one yard line to try to score and and the chief stopped him on all three and told the story about how he tackled Nemeth unwanted them and name said to him bell. What are you doing here? You're not supposed to be here though it's like the bell had crossed them up right So that's all it's just it's forgotten defense. It's related to the Super Bowl. That's going on this week. 'cause it's about the chiefs the other thing is is Aaron is there news about Dusty Baker we can we wait on the dusty Baker because I wanted to follow up on your column. Okay Ed K. So the that Super Bowl team that sixty nine chiefs team the seventy super bowl win into lane stadium against the Vikings. They were massive underdog in that Super Bowl. Thirteen points thirteen point. Underdog the year after the jets head. You know and people thought that was a flu yesteryear before so you still still. We were still in the age of the AFL being perceived as inferior to the NFL. Yeah and this was the game more than the jet game ultimately. I've read a lot of stuff about this. This particular game that really convinced the NFL. That Oh my God we you know we have a competitive league in the merger I think had already been planned plan for this wedding last. AFL NFL Super Bowl exactly but the but the the feeling still was that the NFL teams were far superior to the AFC eight teams in Kansas City. Destroyed a great ministry team with by the way pretty damn good defense themselves. Yes you know with the purple people eaters and that particular Super Bowl and and it's a super bowl that I think you rightly bring up. How great that defense was with all of those hall of famers because this super bowls remembered by pro football fans for the great? NFL films. Meiqing up of Hank Schram and all of the sound that came out of the Super Bowl for From Hank Schram matriculating the ball downfield cross twenty two power trapper. And you have all that come on come on let let's matriculate the ball down the field Oh boys and you've got air and find that so we can go out on this show by playing straight loved by Bobby Bobby Bell said they loved. Hey Ah is a hall of fame coach and was considered to be an innovator so we think innovative way ahead of his time and point. Bobby Bell We automatically Saddiqi Goto Lawrence Taylor. And maybe Ronnie Lott or Reggie White as the greatest defensive players of all time bobby bells in that conversation for sation right among the greatest defensive players of all time a tremendous linebacker who who was six foot. I think six foot three about two hundred or at thirty pounds and four back in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine so Bobby Bell should be on that list of greatest defensive players of all time the So that Super Bowl was remembered for that but the next year was the beginning of the merger the two and they created the AFC and the NFC Z.. Off of that and That that Super Bowl too if you go back and look at some of the information from that Super Bowl It one of the coldest super bowls ever played was in Tulane stadium. The field was a mess. If you've ever seen the film of it you the the plank conditions would never be allowed allowed. It would never happen. Era of of the Super Bowl Super Bowl Fedex field that would be normal yeah effects field yes But I think there air and then I think when will obviously the Giants Stadium Super Bowl ended up being the coldest super bowl even though there wasn't any snow that way but I think that that super bowl and maybe the one played in Houston outdoors Before the Astrodome was built which was the Miami I the Miami Second Super Able Win after they I I actually. I don't know if that's true or not. I gotTA look that up that Miami Super Bowl where they beat the Vikings That was in Houston. Right I think there was in Houston. I don't know you're off on a tangent. I'm off tangent looking the shit up. Okay let me let me let me hold i. Just you know because I'm going to go back and now here for second year. I got it right here. I don't WanNa wait rice stadium. It was dead at Miami. Any dolphins seventy four super seventy-three season was played outdoors in Houston at Rice Stadium. Now the Astrodome was built at that point wasn't it. Yeah so I wonder why they played it outdoors but that I think that and the two lane stadium where the coldest super bowls before the giants Super Bowl the temperatures in the forties and was bad weather all right dusty Baker. What's going on with dusty Baker Aaron so Bob Nightingale has said that while it's not official yet the astros have decided on dusty Baker as their new manager? I'm glad dusty is GonNa man oh my dusty. Baker is a very good manager. All you geeks in your basement you. You're so you you were so wrong about dusty and I'll tell you what this is going to make. This is only going to add to a very interesting West Palm Beach Spring Training. Uh because not only do the astros the sign stealing cheaters share the spring training complex with the Washington nationals now dusty. Baker for former national. Spanish teacher is going to be right next store with the Houston Astros. That's going to be a wild spring training down. We'll play each each other each other all the first. The first preseason exhibition game is February. twenty-second is Saturday night. Astros versus nationals dusty versus Dave Martinez. Baby that's awesome. You know what is really going to annoy me about this and I'm really happy. That dusty has a job but the as already started framing this this is going to be a redemption sees seagulls guy dusty perfect manager to have that narrative yes. He's the right guy for them because they're going to portray themselves as victims as a team. That was victimized in this you know So dusty is the right guy for for for what they need to do right now. They're they need credibility and they are good team mm-hmm yes they are okay just a quick correction. The coldest Super Bowl was the super bowl. All it.
